Lake Lanier is one of the most heavily used USACE lakes in the country. The lake offers great fishing for a variety of species, and its proximity to metro Atlanta makes it a popular destination with both anglers and pleasure boaters. Lake Sidney Lanier is named for the nineteenth-century Georgia poet, Sidney Clopton Lanier. The poet’s love of the area inspired him to write his famous “Song of the Chattahoochee.” Lake Lanier’s Buford Dam was completed in 1956 as part of a comprehensive development plan for the Chattahoochee River. Lake Lanier is a frequent stop on national bass tournament trails. Although summertime angling basically becomes a nighttime proposition because of the heavy use, in the cooler months anglers have the lake to themselves. Key species: spotted bass, largemouth bass, striped bass, crappie, white bass, channel catfish.
